Translator's notes: Herzl Forest: A commemoration in Eretz Israel of the father of modern Zionism, Theodor Herzl. This may refer to an olive grove planted at Ben Shemen four years earlier in 1908, or a larger one established the same year as the publication, at Hulda, according to this website. Trees were planted in the Land of Israel to commemorate events and as a token of appreciation for one's deeds, work, volunteer work, etc. and the custom exists today as well.
